Arriving to campus can be both exciting and a bit scary. Each student who comes to campus for the first time has some worries about what campus living is like. We’re committed to helping you to make your residence hall experience a safe and comfortable one. Our residence halls open for the semester one day before classes begin. This allows you time to get settled before classes start.
Your room will be furnished with the following item:
- Bed that can be bunked
- Twin XL mattress
- Desks and chairs
- Wardrobe closets
- Windows with blinds
- Microfridge (microwave and small refrigerator)
Furniture items you may bring to school include the following: small couch, stereo stand, small coffee table or night stand, bookshelf, or drafting table. Personal furnishings such as shelves, cabinets, etc. must be free standing and self supporting. They cannot rest on any piece of furniture and may not be anchored in any way to the walls or to NHTI furniture. Additional items should be approved by the Director of Residence Life prior to their placement in the residence hall.
For a list of suggested items to bring with you (and things not to bring) see our Helpful Packing List.
There are common single sex (all residence halls) and gender neutral bathrooms in each of the residence halls. They are all equipped with multiple standard bathroom facilities as well as one handicap facility.
Trash from your rooms is not to be placed in lounge, bathroom or kitchen trash bins. Students are responsible for taking their trash out to the dumpsters. We conveniently locate the dumpsters right outside of your residence hall.
Each residence hall is equipped with laundry facilities. The machines are operated with laundry cards. You may buy laundry cards and put money on them from the card machine in Little Hall across from the cafeteria. Laundry cards cost $5. We caution you not to put too much money on your laundry card at one time. Lost cards cannot be refunded. Ironing is permitted in the laundry room on the ironing boards provided. You are reminded to bring your own irons.
Mail is delivered Monday-Friday by the Resident Assistants or other staff members. Each student has a mailbox in their residence hall. Mail should be addressed in the following way:
Your Residence Hall
NHTI, Concord’s Community College
31 College Drive
Concord, NH 03301-7412
We cannot accept COD mail unless arrangements for payment are made with the Stock Clerk III prior to the arrival of the package. Outgoing U.S. mail may be deposited in the mailbox located on the north side of Sweeney Hall.
Quiet Study Rooms
In each residence hall, there are study lounges with tables, desks, chairs, etc. Students should be considerate of each other when studying in these areas. Students may use the Quiet Study Rooms at any time.
Courtesy hours are from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 p.m. – 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Courtesy hours are designed to allow those who wish to study or sleep during this time the opportunity to do so without undue interruption.
Quiet Hours are from 10 p.m. – 10 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 12 a.m. – 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Quiet hours are designed to be a time when the residence hall is extremely quiet to allow for studying and sleeping. There should be no excessive noise at other times. Students who violate the quiet hour policy may face disciplinary action. Continued violations emanating from excessive volume may result in confiscation of equipment. No parties, socials or gatherings that would be disturbing to other residents of the hall will be allowed in the residence halls during mid-semester test week or finals week.
Each of the residence halls is equipped with some recreational equipment which is available to resident students. Use of this equipment requires that students take an active role in preventing damage or abuse to the facilities or equipment.
Ping pong, foosball and pool tables are available in each hall for student use. Students should contact a Hall Council member to sign out equipment. Resident students must forfeit their ID card as collateral for the equipment.
Internet and Movie Streaming Service
Internet connections and a movie streaming service are provided to each residence hall room without additional charge. The residence halls will get new movies through Residence Life Cinema each month for residents to enjoy.
